Whirlpool Laundry Center Part

6 posts in this topic

I have a Whirlpool Laundry Center Model # LT5005XMNO in a summer home that is not winterized.  Last winter, I must not have gotten enough anti-freeze into the system and when I hooked up the water a couple of weeks ago, it was leaking badly.  The pump was broken and leaking, so I replaced that.  Most of the leak was gone, but I am still getting a few drops that are leaking from the top of a yellowish and buff colored soft plastic piece that is attached to the bottom of the tub.  It is several inches long and has an outlet that goes to one of the larger ports of the washer pump (three ports).  It does appear to have something inside it, but I didn't want to tear down the washer until I had the parts to fix it.

I tried to find a diagram of the model so I could get the part name and order one, but I haven't been successful.  The parts list at repairclinic has something called a drain protector that looks a lot like this part, but mine doesn't have a metal rod on it and the one pictured appears to have two outlets and mine has only one.

If anyone can help me with the name of this item, I would appreciate it.

Thanks,

Bruce

by the way you have described this,it sounds to me like this is an older belt driven unit(pump with 3 outlets) and the part you are describing is the manifold(pin catcher or button trap) which is made of rubber and has a hard plastic insert pressed into it. conceivably,this could have been split and cracked if frozen up.not an expensive part by any means,but somewhat labor intensive to replace as you must gain access to it from the inside of the tub because the plastic insert inside the manifold lifts out from above,and the new manifold must be pressed down through from the top and then sealed prior to reinserting theplastic piece. remove the tub ring,agitator and spin basket-bear in mind that the large spanner nut that secures the basket on these units is a left hand thread and therefore must turn clockwise to loosen.;)

#17 is the part.  Thanks for your help, the diagram, and the part numbers!

Thanks for your help.  My machine is a belt driven one with a 3 port pump.  From the diagram that Pegi sent and from your description, it must be the tub outlet manifold.  Thanks for your help.  Now I can see if it is available.
